Living Abroad And Want To Watch UK Television For Free?

How Does The Software Work So You Can Watch UK TV Abroad For Free?

First of all, I want to explain why you can’t usually watch UK TV abroad for free using services like BBC iPlayer and 4oD. This is due to licensing and the fact that when you try to access the service your computer is telling the service provider that you are outside of the UK. They know this because of your computers IP address which is always automatically set to the country you are in.

The solution is simple, you can use this free software. The software is a VPN (virtual private network). The VPN software works by changing the IP address of your computer you are in whatever country you choose in the settings. For the purpose of watching British television aboard you will want to set the software to show your computer is in the UK, therefore, bypassing settings that UK catch up services like BBC iPlayer have there you can only use the service if you are in the UK.

Uk TV shows abroad on all devices

UK TV Online For Expats Abroad Anywhere

My project, Watch British TV, started simply as a way to help a few friends that are British ex-pats to get some TV they were missing from back home. I found it sad that they were struggling to keep some connection with the UK due to not being able to find a way to legally unblock geo-restricted content from where they are.

This one cause, a singular vision, blossomed into this website. The premier place on the web where people can get what they are looking for from ‘Blighty’. Boasting thousands of members and more content than any other site like it. There just isn’t, in our opinion, really any other UK entertainment site out there that loves to help the expats community as much we do.

Not only do we help people watch TV abroad but we also provide live TV in players so that all people have to do is press play and they will be instantly brought back to feeling connected to home by their favourite characters from the world-class programs. Like Eastenders, Coronation Street, Hollyoaks, etc.

Not Just About British TV Shows Online!

What you have found is not just for when you want to watch a television series online or even the best site to download British TV. Nor is it about getting your BBC live so you don’t miss the latest Eastenders episode. It is about more than finding how to get British TV shows online free. It is a forum. A directory. A community! Please share our site with everybody you know. That is what keeps it available and for free for everybody anywhere.
